Nollywood actor and film producer, Kunle Afolayan, on Tuesday, screened his long-anticipated movie, ‘Mokalik’ in front of a select audience in Lagos.
The screening, which held at the Filmhouse theatre, Twin Waters in Victoria Island, had in attendance veteran filmmaker Tunde Kelani; Jahman Anikulapo; Afro-Pop singer Simi and some other notable personalities in the movie production industry.
The movie, written by Tunde Babalola and directed by Kunle Afolayan, explains the career of an 11-year-old boy of a middle-class suburb who spends the day as a lowly apprentice at a mechanic workshop in order to understand life from the other side of the tracks.
“MOKALIK is an ambitious film project that tells a story which is unique and relevant to our society. It beautifully highlights diversity while distinctively addressing the issues around choice,” the award-winning movie told guests who attended the screening.
“This was why I chose to situate life’s happenstances in a typical Nigerian mechanic workshop,” the filmmaker said
“Mokalik” features singer Simi, and BBN ex-housemate, Tobi Bakre.
It also features other prominent actors like Femi Adebayo, Charles Okocha, Faithia Williams, Lateef Oladimeji.
Comic actors like Wale Akorede (Okunu), Ayo Ogunshina (Papa Lolo) and Dayo Akinpelu (Alabi Yellow) also star in the movie.
